What does Oct 29 to Nov 26 2011 have in common with IAJGS, your JGS and the Jewish Genealogy? If your answer was that this is the Hebrew month of Cheshvan you are right in part. It is also International Jewish Genealogy Month and an opportunity and vehicle to have our communities focus on Jewish Genealogy and our JCCs, our SIGS and our projects.
This year's International Jewish Genealogy Month Committee will be chaired by Nancy Adelson of Seattle who will be joined by Rabbi Garry Gans of New Jersey, Howard Morris of Boston, Jeanette Rosenberg of England and Garri Regev of Jerusalem. We are still looking to expand the committee and get volunteers to ensure a success so if you have any ideas let me know.
And though our focus is a month of great programs, our annual poster is an anchor. Details of the poster contest for which a June 15th submission date has been established, are to be found at our website www.iajgs.org and will be elaborated on by Nancy.
So start thinking of International Jewish Genealogy Month whether you live in Los Angeles, Toronto, Liverpool, Ra'anana, Johannesburg, Paris or Melbourne. Your November programs are right around the corner.
